Become a detective for the day and help us solve the mystery! Science leaves us clues every day that help us discover new information. Use your investigative skills to identify the culprit by examining trace evidence, studying suspects, and more! In this camp, we will:  

- Use our powers of observation to search for clues, and use chemistry to identify mysterious substances! 

- Investigate trace evidence left at the scene of the crime, including secret hidden messages!  

- Explore the forensic science behind fingerprints  

- Create your own invisible ink!  

- Extract DNA samples and solve the mystery!

This camp fulfills the Girl Scout Badge for Juniors, Detective. A Children's Science Center Fun Patch is available for purchase. 


How Do Virtual Camps Work?


Each day of virtual camp will consist of three hours of a structured Zoom session with fun science games, hands-on activities and an exciting science demonstration, animal encounter, or behind-the-scenes at the Lab experience led by our expert STEM educators.


Campers will receive a kit full of supplies for hands-on fun! Each kit will have all the materials necessary for the camp activities, along with additional fun activities and games to try on your own.


Kits will be available for contactless pick Friday, December 18 from 4pm - 6pm and Saturday, December 19 from 10am - 12pm. If you are joining us from out of town, we will provide a list of easy to locate ingredients that can be purchased online or at your local stores.
